The Salvation Army works with some of the most vulnerable people in society. As we continue to face heathcare challenges, high fuel costs and other problems, people on the margins need us now more than ever.
From running food banks and checking up on people who live alone and giving practical and spiritual support, Salvation Army churches all over the country are responding to the crisis in dozens of different ways.
In Sheringham we provide a Foodbank (by appointment 10am-12pm) and in January 2023 we opened our new Sheringham Food Club. The aim is to help those with financial challenges. We are also able to offer advice on practical, health and mental health issues, spiritual guidance and a place to meet. We want what we do to make a difference. We are there for you.
Sheringham Food Club is a ‘not for profit’ social enterprise set up by Sheringham Corps of The Salvation Army in partnership with Norfolk Community Foundation and other partners/donors.
Why a food club?
Its purpose is to make food available for sale at substantially reduced prices to help people during the current financial crisis and particularly for those on a low income. We aim to offer some fresh fruit and vegetables and some other items free to members. A limited supply of sanitary products will be free. Toiletries will also be on sale.
Who can join?
Membership isn’t means-tested and we are prioritising households within the NR26 postcode and surrounding villages. Since it is a ‘Club’, there is a fee (£5) renewable in January each year. We need a few personal details and your agreement to abide by a few simple rules.
How can l join?
The Application forms are available at The Salvation Army Hall and/or Charity Shop. Once completed, please bring your form & £5 to the ‘Sheringham Food Club’ which is opposite The Salvation Army Hall (Cremer Street). Please reminder to bring some shopping bags with you.
